Result: Northampton Saints power past Glasgow Warriors in European Champions Cup

Northampton Saints manage to battle past the Glasgow Warriors by claiming a 26-15 victory in their European Rugby Champions Cup match.

Northampton Saints have secured their second win of their European Rugby Champions Cup campaign by defeating Glasgow Warriors 26-15 this evening.

Finn Russell kicked a long-range penalty to put Glasgow in front, but a high kick from Stephen Myler caused huge problems and the ball bounced into the grateful George Pisi's arms to cross over.

Myler converted before adding a penalty from a collapsed Glasgow scrum.

Glasgow prop Ryan Grant was then shown a yellow after 20 minutes for collapsing another scrum, before Myler added another three.

Ahsee Tuala slipped Stuart Hogg's tackle out wide to get Northampton's second, before Peter Horne finally scored for Warriors after hitting a hard line off Josh Strauss' carry.

Russell added the extra two from distance, but Myler was to put the Saints 11 points ahead at the break as he added a kick between the posts following a penalty from the home side.

In the second half, Tuala added his second try of the match when he collected a handoff and powered over the line in the corner, but Myler was to miss the resulting conversion.

Luther Burrell was sent to the sin bin for the visitors, which allowed the Warriors to get back into the match when Strauss capitalised on his team's numerical advantage to cross the tryline.

However, the Saints proved to be determined in their defence to hold out for the victory, their second of the campaign.
